We watch TALES OF THE GOLD MONKEY, talk Manarra for a bit, long before the comicsgate abortion; get curious about the reviews for SIN CITY: DAME TO KILL FOR; which I later found were in fact somewhat accurate. TechJedi notes his re-reading of all of SIN CITY. We finally get to the MARVEL’S for August. Kicking it off is AMAZING X-MEN 7-Whereforeart thou, Wendigo? raises questions about cannibalism digestion and curses. NIGHTCRAWLER 4 has a kinda, um, odd take on the physicality of memories; Hawkeye 19 which is now an experiment in experimenting. IRON MAN SPECIAL 1 has the kids of Cyclop’s team hanging around in alien bars and being kept from Tony Stark as a matter of trust. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 4 makes me love it for Pete actually doing science for once. BLACK WIDOW 8 has Nat somehow broke, despite investments and big contracts.
